I’m always trying to find ways to keep my house clean and smelling good, with minimal work. I’m not lazy by any means, but my unofficial motto in life is “work smarter, not harder”. My schedule is way too busy to clean everything in my house everyday, so I do my best to find short cuts to help me out. I especially don’t like having to clean 3 bathrooms. I’m not sure if it’s because there’s so much preparation with cleaning the bathroom. You need your gloves, toilet cleaners, toilet scrubber, glass cleaner, disinfectants, and whatever else you use to get a shiny clean bathroom. I found a way to keep my toilet bowls cleaner and to combat those ugly yellow water stains. These toilet fizzy bombs work perfectly and are super simple to make.
What You Need
¾ Cup Cornstarch
¾ Cup Baking Soda
¼ Cup Citric Acid
¼ Cup Super Washing Soda
2 ½ Oz. Water
10 – 15 Drops Essential Oil, Any Scent
Candy or Small Soap Mold
In a large bowl, mix the cornstarch, baking soda, citric acid, and washing soda.
Mix water and essential oil in the spray bottle.
Put on rubber gloves. Spray cornstarch mixture with water mixture. Add the water slowly while you’re mixing with your hands.
The mixture should be able to hold its shape when squeezed in your hand.
Press the mixture in the mold. Make sure to remove any air bubbles by pressing firmly. Let mixture completely dry for at least one hour.
I place these in the tank of my toilet every few uses. When flushed the washing and baking soda help keep the toilet bowl clean and the oil keeps the toilet smelling great!
*This batch made about 40 fizzies with the mold I used. If the mixture gets hard between batches, add a little more water mixture.
